these toys rock!

Trained as architects, Miami natives Catherine O’Sullivan and Michael Galea weren’t horsing around when they came up with a clever design for their modern rocking toys.

The company. Started in 2012, the Miami-based Wee Rock Toy Co. offers a unique line of rocking toys made from eco-friendly bamboo plywood.

The founders: O’Sullivan and Galea are both graduates of the University of Miami School of Architecture.

Inspiration: A desire to design a baby gift for one of Catherine’s relatives in Ireland, where the couple planned a visit. They challenged themselves to come up with their own take on a classic toy: the rocking horse. The toy also had to fit flat in their carry-on luggage and be easily assembled.

The goods: In addition to the Rocking Horse, choose the Rocking Giraffe, Gorilla, Rhino or Elephant. The rockers measure 33 inches long and 13 inches wide. The seat height is 13 inches.

What makes them different: Each rocker features just six parts and assembles in minutes. No tools, glue or hardware needed. It can be easily disassembled for travel or storage.

Best seller: Rocking Elephant

Buy: Rockers are $300, including shipping to 48 states, at www.weerocktoyco.com
